Hello Stranger

Wow, I can't believe it's been 3 months since I last wrote a newspaper post! So I wanted to fill you all in on my brief haitus. At the end of June I found out that my company was closing down our building and asking us to move to a new state. Which of course meant that I had to find a new job ASAP because I had no intentions of selling the new farm I bought recently. At the same time I got an assignment at work that was 10 weeks of working with another company which meant I was away more and had longer days than normal (I'm talking some days with a 5 hour commute!!!!). On top of that and looking for a new job my computer is broken (mousepad is stuck in right click mode), one of our servers is being email bombed and I had to shut down the email service completely, and I haven't been able to use anything other than my phone which is horrible for trying to update this newspaper on our servers. Long story short, I've found a new job and things are starting to settle down in my crazy schedule and I'll have enough money for a new laptop soon. That being said, I'm sorry for the delay in email responses and I'm working my way through them over the next few days. We had a few weeks where PayPal was not creating upgrades properly so if you paid for an upgrade and it has not appeared on your account please let me know so I can get that corrected or refund your money if you'd like a refund instead.

Around The Farm
5.18.2016 posted by jade@design1online.com
Hey guys, I'm so glad it's finally warm out! Now the only problems is that we just got 2 weeks straight of rain, yuck. Our arena is officially finished even though we ran into several setbacks -- we hit rocks we had to dig out, then the contractor hit the electrical and broke it, then we had drainage issues which we had to fix by putting in a french drain and we had to take a bunch of fencing down to fix the grade where the arena went so I had to bring the horses to my friends house for two and a half weeks. It seems like it took forever but the farm is finally starting to get back to normal!!!


Mash-Up Photo Contest

This month we're going to have a photo editing contest. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take a picture of a horse and combine it with a picture of another animal or object to create a unique, new breed of horse. You can submit as many entries as you'd like but the entries must be your own work (no taking things off the internet!!) and you must send in a .png or .gif or .jpeg image along with your account register and ID number to jade@design1online.com. The winner and runner-up will get a choice between a FREE upgrade or a retired horse returned to the game. Entries are due by May 29th. Pictures will be judged on creativity and how well you blended the horse with another animal or object. If you need free images you can use for this contest check out http://morguefile.com.
Arena and Summer Camps

Hey guys, it's been a few busy weeks for me but I wanted to share some exciting news. We've started building the arena on our farm and I wanted to share some pictures so you can see it in progress! Also, I'm super excited to announce that I'll be holding summer camps at the farm in Warrenton, VA if anyone lives in the area and is interested in coming out to camp. It's currently limited to ages 6-12 and it's $400 a session which is Monday-Friday from 9am to 5pm and I have three different sessions available, one in the last week of July and the other two are the first two weeks in August. So without further ado, here's pictures of the arena in progress.
